Hey Dal,

its snowbird season again, so Rockport driving is "challenging" , I would almost rather dodge the 24 wearing hoopdie with the grill and the bangers inside. At least they dont want to hurt their 24's might pull a drive by but dont dent the rims.

My snowbirds generally cant see over the steering wheel of the Dodge 8500 super extra dooper diesel they used to pull their fifth wheel to my domain and seem to lose a 6'3" rider on a Super T thats eye to eye with them.

See, Coastalcop knows!

But I can't disagree on the Houston drivers thing. But not a fair comparison. While riding ANY bike ANYWHERE, a certain degree of diligence is required or your motorcycle career will be short. But "city" riding is another level.

I avoid it amap.

You guys may be right about the Rockport drivers... But at least they *SEEM* better to me.

You gotta' remember, I live in Corpus - Home of the Absolute Dumbest, Most Idoitic, Least Skilled, Moronic Drivers on Planet Earth!!!

Trust me... Any place else is an improvement!

Super Tenere resale

Anyone else feel kinda shafted by the prices dealers are selling leftover 2012s for? Looks like there are new ones out there in the mid $11k range, at least in the mid-atlantic region. Isn't this a bike that had an MSRP in the mid $14k range and gets rave reviews? I ended up paying in the low $13k and thought I got a pretty good deal. I know its winter, but still, this is a way better bike than is being reflected in the price! What the hell! Anyone who is in the market for a Tenere had better jump on it and clear these inventories out! Kind of like having a few foreclosed homes on your block...

See if this makes you feel any better... They sell for $18,200 OTD here in Japan, despite being made here. I thought I got a decent deal paying $15,300 for my used 2011 with 2,500 miles on it and a grand's worth of accessories.

The electrical drain this ring puts on the battery is documented elsewhere on this site. The starting problem is not a problem for me, at least not yet.
Well then.. wire it through the ignition circuit!

Well, that probably takes the cake in overall dollars. I'd be on a Zuma 125 if I was over there at those prices. I think we are probably suffering the same percentage decline here though. If you paid full price for one last year you were probably somewhere north of $14k, dealer trade-in would now be $9k and on the used market you might be happy to get somewhere in between......I guess 20% depreciation isn't all that unusual in the car world, but still you would think that such a long lasting, durable bike like the S10 would hold its value a little better. They don't even break-in for 5,000 miles...or so I'm told.

A month after buying mine for 1.39 million, two different dealers offered me 900,000 yen as a trade-in for new bike. $5K drop, just like where you are. I think the bike market is pretty much in the doldrums everywhere and trade-in values have taken a big hit.

Oh not true my friend. In DC we get the diplomats' wives & teen-age kids.
Or even worse, the locals!
And tourists.
And politicians.
